With so many products to choose from, shopping for flooring can seem overwhelming. That’s where the staff at Carpet Barn Carpet One Floor & Home come in. “Redecorating is a lot of fun,” says sales consultant Shannon Sylvester. “You get to know a person by what they like and what they don’t like.”
The staff, who keep up to date with the latest trends and products, are experts at identifying the best flooring solution to fit an individual’s specific needs. Have allergies or a scent sensitivity to VOCs? A no-dye, wool carpet from Karastan might be your best option. “Typically carpeting will have a slight off-gassing [from VOCs] in the beginning,” says Sylvester. “It is very mild, but by the end of installation you can’t smell it anymore. If a customer has allergies or a chemical sensitivity, this type of carpeting is the best way to go.”
Families with young children might opt for a carpet with SmartStrand® technology. “When something is spilled, it puddles on top of the carpet instead of soaking in, which makes clean-up a lot easier,” explains Sylvester. For kitchens, baths or mudrooms where you’d like the look of hardwood but the water-resistant properties of vinyl, Luxury Vinyl Planks are a great solution. “LVP is the fastest growing flooring right now because of its versatility,” says Sylvester, who adds: “It’s about half the cost of hardwood flooring and it’s warmer to the touch than tile.”
Carpet Barn also sells hardwood and laminate flooring, area rugs, nylon carpeting in a wide spectrum of colors and patterns as well as ceramic, stone and porcelain tile. Other locations include Falmouth, Hyannis and Dennisport.
